Forum: GratefulDead Subject: back to music

After a weekend of extreme grief and outrage it's time to get back to a little music in a form of a revised list.I did propose this list as the guitarests w/ the most identifiable styles.Also w/ list I included their tools .Except for Jimi who I still believe came from another planet and was just visiting here there is no rhyme or reason in the importance of any of these players
1.Jimi Hendrix-Jimi Hendrix Experience-Fender Statocaster,Gibson Flying V
2.Robby Krieger-The Doors--Gibson S.G.
3.Pete Townsend-The Who-Gibson Les Paul,Fender Strats,Fender Telecaster,primarys
4.John Fogerty-CCR,Solo--Gibson L.P.Custom
5.Leslie West-Mountain--Gibson L.P.Jr.
6.Jerry Garcia--GD,solo--Gibson L.P.,S.G Fender Strat,Alembic customs
7.Neil Young-CSNY-Solo--Gibson L.P. Custom "Blackie"
8.Rodger McQuinn-The Byrds--Rickenbacker 12 string sig model
9.Carlos Santana-Santana,Solo-Gibson S.G.,Ibanez sig.
10.Robin Trower-Procal Harum,Solo-Gibson L.P.,Fender Strat
11.Jorma-J.Airplane,Hot Tuna,Solo-Gibson ES335,Gibson Firebird,Fender Strat,Gibson L.P.Custom,Taylor acoustic
12.Prince-Honer Telecaster,Customs
13.Alvin Lee-TYA-Solo-Gibson ES335 Primary"Big Red"
14.David Gilmour-Pink Floyd-Fender Stratocaster
15.John Cippolina-Quicksiver M.Service,Solo-Gibson S.G.
16.Dave Davies-The Kinks-Gibson L.P.Custom
17.Mike Bloomfield--Butterfield B.B.,Electric Flag-Gibson L.P.Gold Top,Fender Telecaster
SO,there's the revised list ,except for Prince I've seen and heard all these guys and this was done entirely from memory and again I'm not saying that each and every one are the best in the world they are just different.

No Zappa? No Fripp? I'd say they're both identifiable, or at least distinct from other guitarists/styles (although they're plagued by imitators, like the rest of your list.)

I nominate Willie Nelson. He's not a great guitarist, but certainly has a distinctive sound.

I'll 3rd that. Again not known to be a great guitarest but 1 damn good songwriter and performer.Mark Knoffler for sure but what did he play?I do know he has a fantastic and very expensive collection of mainly vintage Strats.

I agree. Check out the very first austin city limits. He has some damn fine guitar work throughout that show. All available on you tube. I was obsessed with this show over the past december - february

Yeah! Thanks for the link. It's good to hear Up Against the Wall Redneck Mother. You can find some versions of the song here at LMA by Cracker/Camper/Hickman/Lowry.

Such as this one:

since there's no mention of genre, I've got to throw out Django Rheinhardt (Selmer) - totally recognizable, but then they all are if you know what they sound like (huh?)

No Jeff Beck ?

He sounds unique whether playing a Strat or a Les Paul.

I did indeed see JB a few times w/ Nickey Hopkins w/ Rod Stewart and w/ his own band .Listen like I said I did this from just a very quick memory session w/ myself.If I named every single band and or player that I've seen it would be a little tedious for the rest of you.When I saw him he played only a L.P.Standard w/ p/u covers removed and later went on to the white Strat.Also I think we all know what Clapton and SRV played on and on.Yes Doug Erwin was a gross oversite.
